Using fictitious examples, for clarity, I have a Dynamic DDNS with no-ip of "abc.ddns.net" along with a relevant username and password.

 

I add the above address to the Dynamic DDNS section and it works okay.  I can remotely access my router then with my DDNS address, port and router logon credentials then to finalize the connection.  

 

For added security though - and again using examples:

 

The above is not a secure connection though, so how do I add the SSL certificate to make it secure?  And, is it correct for my WAN IP that the router is using to be the same as the public IP that no-ip gave me for "abc.ddns.net"?  They are the same in my case.

 

Also, I have a domain of "user.duma.com" (actual domain is "duma.com" with a CNAME record for "user" so that I can use "user" points back to my no-ip ddns of "abc.ddns.net".  This way, I can just type in "https:\\user.duma.com" 

 

And, with my domain provider, I have the ability to use Dynamic DNS with a Dynamic DNS password (the long password).  I would like to use this setup but how is my confusion.

 

In the XR500 then, how would I use "https:\\user.duma.com:8443" so that it requires my Dynamic DNS password instead of using "https:\\abc.ddns.net:8443" using my regular router credentials?  I also have an "A+ Dynamic DNS Record" type where "user.duma.com" points to my public ip from no-ip which oddly is the same as my WAN IP on the router.

 

 

Thanks ALL.

Hi Migsta - I'd highly recommend contacting Netgear Support about this since we didn't design the settings section of DumaOS. They could provide much more clarity on this. If you make an account you should be given a 24/7 phone line to contact. Thanks!

Why wouldn't the DumaOS at least faciliate the registering of DDNS coupled with a secure https/SSL connection to the router.  The Asus routers do this easily and automatically within their router OS.  It's just kind of scary that we can enable remote connection to our routers but there's nothing that automatically prompts the user to switch to a secure https connection instead of http.  Or, maybe I'm missing something here?  It's the same with Netgear and their X6s router.  And, their support is not good with these questions.

 

Thanks though.  Will look elsewhere to try and understand this.

Remote connection does force HTTPS, I haven't tried this with DDNS so if that is the case Netgear Support is definitely the best place to go and if they confirm it they can log it as a bug. I'd recommend calling their support line you will get faster and better support.
